I'm looking to make a custom spec'd hammock that's pretty wide. I don't want seams (ala Doubles). It's tough to find wide fabric - say, anything in the 68-72" range.
Assuming I have comparable sized options so that's not a factor, my next concern is strength and durability. A DL 1.1 supposedly = 2.2, so it should be stronger, but those layers individually are so thin, I'm wondering if they are weaker in the real world.
I'm not just thinking about the weight the hammock will support, but the normal stuff hammocks go through. Moving around in them, stuffing and unstuffing, a little accidental abrasion here and there, etc.
The weight difference is small enough that toughness would be my deciding factor. Anybody have real world experience with these two options? Opinions on which would be a better backcountry hammock as far as durability?
